Arianna Blooms Card Tutorial

Arianna Blooms 02Arianna Blooms Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  I’m back with another beautiful Arianna Blooms card tutorial.  Today’s card features bold colors and bodacious Arianna Blooms from Heartfelt Creations.  I hope you enjoy!

Arianna Blooms 01aThis card is loaded with texture!  I embossed the yellow  card base, then topped it with a distressed layer of deep rose paper from the paper collection that I also ran through an embossing folder.  Then, I took a sheet of watercolor paper and inked up  Spellbinder’s M-Bossabilities Labels 34 Medallion with distress ink and ran it through my machine.  Lots of distressed edges, painted flowers and a beautiful lemon Delicate Stitched Satin ribbon add to all that yummy texture. I adorned this creation with loads of die cuts from the amazing Arianna Lace Die.

You’ll find a complete Arianna Blooms card tutorial below along with a complete list of the supplies I used here.

I’m off to make potato salad for the 4th of July festivities tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!  Your visits and comments make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers.

Cheerio,

kathy

Cut a 5″ x 7″ panel of glossy white cardstock. Spritz lightly with water. Apply Wild Honey DI directly to the flat side of embossing folder. Position the cardstock on the opposite side of folder and run through Grand Calibur. Wipe away excess ink from the raised portions of the embossed panel. Heat dry to set the ink. Distress and Ink the edges. Add lace and ribbon to the base of this panel and glue to the card base.
Stamp 3 sets of the Arianna Blooms onto the pale yellow paper in the collection using Wild Honey DI. Emboss with clear embossing powder. Die cut, shape and stack.

Die cut both doily shapes from white cardstock. Layer in the center of the embossed panel, lifting the edges to create more dimension. Die cut 2 sets of the flourishes and glue on either side of the embossed panel. Add the flowers as shown. Die cut two of the decorative embellishments. Tap with Aged Mahogany DI. Glue at the top of the card. Die cut the ticket from the paper collection. Ink the edges and attach in the center with foam dots. Add rhinestones if desired.
